Album Review: Lowell Captures Youth In Part 1: Paris YK

Can music feel good? Hmmmm. Can music feel so instantly right that mentally you mark it as a pleasure point? Idk. Yet, when I heard Lowell’s EP Part 1: Paris YK, I knew that I would want every single part of her sound. From the bass-drops to the soft simmer of her vocals, Lowell delivers a three track introduction into your sonic world, and I can assure you that you will let her live in it. 

Track By Track Review
High Enough
My favorite track by far, this song’s bass drops into your soul. The synthetic sonics of this track make you feel surrounded as Lowell sultrily sings ” Am I high enough?”. For however virtual the rhythms are, the song feels grounded through a tribal beat. Moreover, its theme of feeling insecure with a lover that knows how to get in your head will resonate to many. Hence, the song’s ability to make you feel surrounded by it words and sounds are a perfect symbol to how claustrophobic a person can feel in a manipulative relationship. 
Blow The Bass
This song sounds like a sad, club song in the most fantastic way. There is a darkness to its beats that, for however much the bass makes you want to dance, carries a teary sentiment. It is as if you are moving in a haunted dance-floor entranced by a tragic lover.  I know this is a dramatic description, but this song is meant for music drama queens like myself lol. 
West Coast Forever

Playful keys strike throughout this track that embodies West Coast Youth. It captures every young person’s dream of a better place, and their brimming angst to be bigger than any reality known. Lyrically the song is beautiful and clear in it spiritual tension: how do you become the fantasy of yourself? Moreover, Lowell sounds radiant in this song. Her melody is literal “pop goodness”. If Pop music needs a new ambassador for its core sound then I vote Lowell! She is the summery, sugar rush equated with this genre, and will make you want to book a flight to a California beach and happily yell “West Coast Forever!!!!!”.

Lowell has provided an album that is vibrantly cinematic in its experience. You will hear, see, feel, taste, and, maybe, smell this album as it provides that much a physical experience in its spiritual resonance. Paris YK Part 1 is definitely a record that exudes youth in an invincible fashion. It makes being young sound eternal, which, for me, is an amazing feat in three tracks.
